Best PS in the Twin Cities - Minneapolis, MN

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

35 Year Old, 2 Kids-mommy Makeover. Minneapolis, MN

Show More Dr Tholen is the best! His work is amazing! I feel like my breasts are perfect, I could not have imagine they would look so great! Very happy with my tummy and lipo too, I cannot believe how flat and smooth my midsection is. I healed quickly and that is due to the great care I received from Dr Tholen and his staff! I highly recommend Dr. Tholen at Minneapolis Plastic Surgery!

45 Year Old MTF Tracheal Shave Yay! Minneapolis, MN

Show More Dr Tholen is simply the best doctor that I could have gone to for this type of surgery. His knowledge and familiarity with the needs of a trans woman is such a wonderful thing for the trans community. His attention to detail in every aspect from consultation to actual surgery is quite amazing to experience. He really cares about his patient and will go the extra mile to get you the best result possible. In my particular procedure he said that he had to go an extra hour to get everything just right. He encountered tougher bone and had to chip away a piece at a time instead of just shaving off cartilage from the tracheal area. He eventually got it just right and even did a bit of liposuction on my neck to feminize it even more. I was astonished and amazed at how incredible my neck does look. I could not be happier or more content! If you need any plastic surgery or anything else, look no further but to Dr. T! He is the best out there!

5 out of 5 stars Body Lift

Love the Stunning Results! - Minneapolis, MN

Show More A thorough research process of the procedure led me to conclude that I was looking for a practice that included: 1. a board certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience in lower body lifts. 2. an office staff that exemplified a team approach to delivering excellent care in all aspects of the process. 3. the opportunity to have my surgery in a free standing outpatient operating facility. (lower risk of infections; surgeon and support staff are well orchestrated, efficient team in familiar setting). By choosing Dr T, all of the above qualities were quickly evident and my expectations exceeded. In addition, I found that I was treated with the utmost respect and dignity. Each and every one of my questions was answered completely, patiently and enthusiastically, both by Dr Tholen and his knowledgeable staff. There was a prevalent attitude that this group of professionals was proud of their quality care, and loved their jobs. Happy workers make happy patients! I felt totally prepared for what the operation and recovery would be like. Dr T delivers care that is based on sound evidence leading to predictable consistent results - you will not find any gimmicky gadgets or procedures that are experimental or merely for marketing purposes. I have quite a bit of experience with behind the scenes doctors offices, and this one is the real deal. The other practices with whom I consulted all had some good features, but Dr T's practice had the complete package.

12 Year Old Implants Needed to Be Corrected - Minneapolis Plastic Surgery

Show More Never in my life have I had a doctor/dentist any type of health care professional be so attentive, caring, and take the time to talk with me. Dr. Tholen, although very busy, did and continues to make me feel like he has more than enough time for me. He addressed all my concerns, paid attention to every detail, is very thorough, and gave me exactly the results I hoped for. He was also professional and engaging to my husband's questions and concerns. We both felt very taken care of and put at ease. His tips and after care was just as thorough and helpful. I have never been more pleased and satisfied with another experience in my life.

A Decision I Continue to Be Thankful for Everyday! - Minneapolis, MN

Show More The rating is at this high level because I want others to experience what I was lucky enough to experience. I know this is a big decision to make in a person's life and high amounts of anxiety come with it. However, I want everyone to understand the positive experience I had because it makes all the difference. I have been and will continue to recommend Dr. Tholen to others. I found Dr. Tholen's practice after reviewing many plastic surgeons on the internet. For many years I have wanted to get this procedure done but couldn't find anyone I trusted or felt good enough about to follow through with it, until I met Dr. Tholen. After speaking with him and his office, it was clear to me without a doubt I was going to make the 10 hour trip through multiple states because I knew this is where I would find the best care available. He answered all questions and concerns I had. He discussed all areas of the surgery and put my mind at ease regarding normal concerns every patient has going into surgery. The day of the surgery I wasn't nervous, I was excited!! :) Dr. Tholen and his staff were personal and knowledgeable throughout my experience with them. They all made me feel so comfortable XXXX. Before surgery Dr. Tholen re-covered all areas of the surgery and discussed size again. He had a way of approaching me so I wasn't nervous or feeling hesitant at all. I was excited and ready to complete the procedure I had been looking forward to for so many years. After surgery I woke up to very accommodating staff that took care of me until I was stable enough to leave. Before I left Dr. Tholen checked in with me again to ask about the results to make sure I was doing okay. I could not be happier about the results of my procedure. The recovery was practically painless, there was no bruising, and I was back on my feet doing every day activities in no time. I would recommend Dr. Tholen and his staff to anyone who is looking to get any type of plastic surgery complete.

There is no recent activity.
